Obituary: Linda Joanne Leininger


Linda Joanne Leininger

July 15, 1949 – October 4, 2023

It is with heavy hearts and deep sorrow we share the passing of Linda Joanne Leininger. Linda was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend. Born July 15, 1949 in Seattle, she moved to Whatcom County as a child where she would grow up to meet the love of her life, John Leininger, and they would raise their beautiful family together. 

Linda was deeply devoted to her family and we were all deeply devoted to her. She delighted in cooking, crafting, decorating, jewelry making, and treasure hunting. During her lifetime she took care of so many and brought beauty to everything she did. She will be deeply missed by all who were fortunate enough to share their lives with her. We are all extremely grateful to have had the opportunity to experience her care and affection. 

She was preceded in death by her parents, Walter and Louise Thompson and her sister Pamela. She is survived by her beloved husband John Leininger; children Jason (Callie) Leininger, Michelle Leininger, Chris (Breanna) Leininger and Nickolas (Heidi) Leininger; grandchildren Jaydin, Julianna, Annabelle, Jonathon, Ella, Hailee, Sloane, Riley, Chase, Jayden; great-grandchildren Carter, Zyller, Sylvanus, Izanami, Nova Jo; sister Deborah Thompson; nieces and nephews Jamison, Megan, Makenzie and Zach.
